ArcPad 10.2.2 Released!

ArcPadThe ArcPad team is pleased to announce that ArcPad 10.2.2 is available to download via the My Esri website. The ArcPad 10.2.2 update addresses some important usability and feature enhancements that improves the utility and stability of ArcPad.  Here are some highlights:

Updated Projection Support

The projections and datums libraries in ArcPad have been updated to match ArcGIS Desktop 10.3. To help guide users who need to implement custom or unique local projections the documentation for supported projections and supported datums has been expanded.

Working with Photos

It has become more and more common for ArcPad users to collect photos in the field to accompany geographic and attribute data. Now users who check-out and check-in data via Toolbox tools, scripting or the Data Manager object model have better control when working with photos. Photos can be associated with multiple feature classes and the import folder location can be specified. See the expanded help topic for the ArcPad Check Out tool for more information on working with photos.

Data Manager Improvements

The ArcPad Data Manager toolbar is the where most ArcPad projects begin and end; it processes the data for the field and checks the data back in after field activities are completed. Needless to say the Data Manager is key for successful and accurate field work. At 10.2.2 the ArcPad Data Manager has been updated to reduce unused data values and improve data check-in reliability. Also the tools in the data manager toolbar can be accessed programmatically outside of an ArcMap session.

With fixes also made to scripting, tiled base maps and installation, there’s something for everyone in ArcPad 10.2.2.  To learn more see What’s New in ArcPad 10.2.2.
